6/18/2010: Hejduk Nearly Back To Full Health

According to Tom Reed, Crew captain Frankie Hejduk is around 80-90 percent healthy after right hamstring problems. Hejduk could see a few minutes, to get back to fitness, against Premier Development League side the Dayton Dutch Lions tomorrow at UD's Baujan Field. But, I find that to be unlikely since the Crew shouldn't risk Hejduk until he's 100% percent and there should be enough training before D.C. United to get Frankie closer to that goal.

The Columbus Crew need to bring Hejduk along when he's 100% percent fit because the Crew really need the veteran around down the stretch, as it was apparent that the team missed their captain in the last three games. Therefore, it may be a week or two before we see Hejduk as it might be best to make sure his hamstring is fully recovered before giving him a run out. As the Crew cannot afford anymore defensive injuries.
